  • Pentax 17-70mm f/4 AL IF SDM SMC DA

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, reletively light, great color and IQ.
    Not weather sealed, just a tad slow.

    This lens has rarely been off of my K20D since I bought it last summer. It has a great range, and is a great upgrade from the kit lens.

    It is not as fast as good primes, but in our dusty climate, keeping the lens on the camera saves a lot of heartache about dust on the sensor.

    I just bought the DA*60-250, so this will be the perfect companion lens.

    I have not done any testing, but I think that the photos with this lens have been of superlative quality.
